In order for developers to hit the ground running on the Tron Mainnet, the Tron Foundation has seen it fit to provide them with an all-in-one tool suite to make their creative work much easier on the platform. DApp developers will be key in the Tron (TRX) Project becoming great as we move into the future. The final piece that will complete the platform, was the Tron Virtual Machine that was scheduled for activation after the community had voted on implementing the new version of the Mainnet.
The new Version 3.1 of the Tron Mainnet and the TVM, will make it possible for developers to start deploying smart contracts. Tron will be 200 times faster that Ethereum and 100 times cheaper than EOS in terms of the cost of transactions on the platform.
All-In-One Tool Suite for Developers
In preparation for developers to begin creating smart contracts that will power decentralized applications on the platform, the team has launched an all-in-one tool suite for Tron developers. The developer suite includes 4 ‘tools’:
TronWeb: whose main purpose is to connect developers to the blockchain. It aims at offering a unified and seamless development experience. TronWeb is similar to Ethereum’s Web3, but has a different implementation process. TronWeb requires both a Full Node and a Solidity Node that runs on the HTTP API. TronWeb can also be used to send, purchase, and freeze/unfreeze TRX and other tokens
- TronBox: a framework environment that allows developers to test and deploy their smart contracts
- TronStudio: a comprehensive IDE with an embedded TRON Virtual Machine (TVM). It has an internal full node that creates a private local environment for the developer to test their smart contracts before deployment. Its defining feature is that it allows developers to interact with their Solidity based smart contracts in a user friendly environment
- TronGrid: offers a similar use case with Infura on the Ethereum platform by providing developers access to the TRON Network. TronGrid allows developers to build and release their dapps and smart contracts.
More on these tools can be found on the Tron Developer Hub that is available online.
